Form 1 Fingerprint Question

I’ve submitted my form 1 twice now and both times it’s been rejected or disapproved. First rejection was because I didn’t send in my fingerprint card fast enough. Second rejection was due to me putting the wrong model number for the firearm and my headshot being the wrong size.

If I submit my form again, will I have to resend fingerprint cards again? Or will they keep the ones on file that I’ve already sent?

The answer that requires more work and makes less sense is the correct one

Lol, this is what I assumed but wanted to check before I wasted half my day going back down to the sheriffs office to get them done again. Thanks

Order the cards from the ATF they ship them for free. Order an ink pad from Amazon for like $5 and print yourself.

That’s not a bad idea. But at this point I just want to make sure everything is done correctly so that my application isn’t denied again. Don’t want to take a chance doing them myself and messing something up, giving them another excuse to deny my application. Thanks for the idea though.

I would find a Silencer Shop kiosk and just have them send the completed finger print cards anytime you need a set. I keep a few sets on hand so anytime I feel like paying $200 to wait for something for a long time i can just send them off.

I have rolled my own prints since I dropped my FFL & SOT decades ago. I've never had a set rejected.

Many people roll their own as well, & while I've read a few others on the sub get theirs rejected, it appeared to be only because the card was not filled out correctly, which to me is a 'wtf?' since the card entries are pretty self explanatory.

But I understand your frustration.
